asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether the Hetherington Committee on the Reorganisation of Scottish Hospitals has completed its work; whether it is proposed to publish the Report of the committee and when?
Yes, Sir. I have received this Report and copies will be available to hon. Members in the Vote Office today. The Report contains many important recommendations affecting the future of the hospital system of Scotland. Those recommendations are now being considered in connection with the Government's examination of the whole question of a new national health service.
